Re: Blue Amp Light

You can look up the part number of the blue projection tube by the make and model of your projection TV by using a Google search or by contacting the manufacturer.

Replacement projection tubes can be bought from a TV parts store or from the manufacturer -- but do not expect them to be inexpensive.

Hope this helps. :)

I have a PES electronic ballast with 8 wires (2 red,2 blue, 2 brown, 2 green on side. The original has only 4 wires,2 red & 2 blue. The schematic shows 2 of each to each light connection. Confusin

Sounds like you may have the wrong part, figure you have RED, BLUE & GREEN lights those wires will go to each colored light? Sounds correct? You obviously don't have the Brown which may be a contrast or Dark tint, I've never seen a Brown light before and I've ripped apart a number of old Rear projection TV's. What Kind of TV is it? I know My parents had a Sony that was lacking a contrast control setting but it was a super high dollar set and may have had a fourth lens in it. Pioneer may be another that might have a fourth lens. I've torn apart Magnivox, RCA & Zenith sets and all were the same exact set up. Try it without using the Brown and see what happens, That's my suggestion. I doubt it will hurt anything by not connecting them. Since I don't know the make model or the year it's hard to say if it's even worth messing with it anymore. the cost of HD LED TV's is so cheap now there's really no sense on repairing any older projection TV's. Or for that matter even repairing newer ones is more costly than buying a brand new one.

Likely a shop repair but the real issue would be all they sell are boards for this kind of set, Google the model number with parts to see what is available.

Blue haze from lower left slowly starting to consume the screen

The blue LCD panel in the light engine is going bad. The only fix is to replace the light engine. This is an extremely expensive repair. However, Sony has extended the warranty on the light engine only on many of these models. Find a local Sony authorized service center and give them your model and serial number to see if yours qualifies for the warranty.

Blue haze and dull yellow patches on screen

The light engine in your set has gone belly up. It is a very expensive repair. Good news is that on a whole bunch of models like yours Sony has extended the waranty on the light engine. Check with a local authorized Sony service center and give them the model & serial number and you might get a free ride. If I were a betting man I'd take odds on 'you're in luck'. LOL

Convergence problem? Blue shifted to the left, red/green are okay

If your model number is the PT53WX53 its a rear projection CRT television not a DLP. The PT53WS53 uses two STK392-110 convergence ICs. If you verify the model number of your set I can assist you.

Blue blob

Hello rivas_gab. Before I answeryour question let me explain a little how your tv works. You TV uses is a 3LCDtv that gets its picture from a lamp, the lamp produces a white light brighterthan the sun, the light goes through a square prism and is split 3 ways, eachgoing through a small LCD chip (blue, red & green). Then it travels troughthe light engine where the final picture is produced. The blue blobthat appears on the screen might be caused by one or two lcd chips that havestarted to get burn by the intense heat emitted from the light of the lamp. If that is theproblem you’ll have to replace the entire light engine, the other option isthat you buy the prism with the lcd chips, how ever that almost impossible becausenobody that I know sells them separately. If you decide tobuy, search buy part number, NOT model number, otherwise you’ll run the risk ofgetting non compatible parts. If you’re lookinga place to purchase look for dedicated tv part distributors (my personal recommendation:Discount-Merchant ). Happyhunting.

Growing Blue Color

It's most likely the light engine. Sony has a service bulletin on these right now for one of the causes of this. Both causes result in the replacement of the light engine but they are only covering one type.
